AJ has finished the acrylic mitts and Joe doesn't understand why anyone would want fingerless mittens.  AJ is back in the kitchen and nothing has exploded.  There's been a yardage error and AJ needs to decide if their will be any holiday knitting and if so for whom and what it will be.

The podcast is late and AJ has a sore jaw.  What should of been a really productive fiber week got derailed by adventures in truffles and marshmallows only to be totally Kiboshed by Oral surgery and pain meds.  The Embassy Scarf by Amy Polcyn is still on the needles.  For some reason AJ hasn't given up on those scrap yarn socks yet and she learned that she can't lazy daisy worth a bean!  (What excactly is a bean worth, anyway?)
